I’ve been playing with plugins on my blog, and we might have success, Zesties. I’ve installed Comment Luv, which Writer Unboxed uses to good effect. If you keep a blog and have an account with Comment Luv, check the box above the metadata section in the comments. (Where you type in your name, url, etc.) You’ll see a menu pop up which includes links to your last 10 blog posts. Select one and it will become a hyperlink in your comment, making it easier for others to become intrigued by your work.
- If you give it a try, I’d love to know what you think.
- If you don’t care to go that route, the old comment system should still work.
- And if I’ve screwed things up royally, so that you can’t comment at all, please have the kindness to let me know elsewhere. I’m reachable through a number of social media venues. (Yes, I’ve modeling understatement on this crisp, fall morning.)
Last month’s post on Writer Unboxed was pure fun, exploring a fictitious dictionary of authorial words containing “WIP”. Today’s is more personal, serious, but I hope ultimately empowering. (It is for me, anyway.) In a nutshell, in the writing world, I’ve often felt torn about conflicting expert opinion, or my choices to ditch “best practices” as advanced by a guru. It’s one thing to say “follow your gut”, quite another to do it, much less be at peace with the results.
Then I realized I’d turned off my brain. I had a system to evaluate data and opinions in the medical field, but I wasn’t employing it here. When I did, can you guess what happened? Liberation. No more second-guessing, peeps.
Okay. You caught me lying, but the truth is, decisions became a whole lot simpler. Hope you’ll join me on Writer Unboxed for:
